Big Vegas Slot
Big Vegas slot is a 5-reel, 40-pay line online slot from Bally. The theme of the slot is the hot-bed of adult casino (and other) entertainment, Las Vegas. All the symbols used in the game help bring the bright lights of Vegas straight to your PC or laptop screen, including a pair of dice (non-fluffy variety), a handsome poker flush, a slots machine that seems to be on fire for some reason, casino chips, a cocktail & shaker and a key to the exclusive 'High Roller' suite.
The other symbols in the game are playing card values jack to ace, and the special bonus symbols. All forty lines are in play at all times, and you can set your stake-per-line to be anything from 0.01 to 3.75, upping the maximum total stake per spin to 150. To grab a cash prize, you need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence from the left hand reel on one of the pay lines.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts start at x5 for a jack or a queen, to x300 for five 'Wild' symbols.

If the reel ends up pointing straight up or straight down at the bottom or top of the reel respectively then the whole reel turns wild.
If you land three 'Free Games Lounge' symbols, one each anywhere on the central three reels, you land five free games.

The Directional Wild symbols are something of a novelty, but that alone is not enough to elevate this game above 'tame'. The instructions are not very well written, and no explanation seems apparent for why some Wild symbols are blue and others are purple. If you can afford it, I would stick to the real Vegas …
